“A Walk to Remember” by Nicholas Sparks

Julia Ferreira, Staff Writer

A Walk to Remember, directed by Adam Shankman and the story line written by Nicholas Sparks, is about two 17-year old’s: a girl named Jamie Sullivan and a boy named Landon Carter. Landon is the type of guy who usually cares what people think and changes his act around other people, but when he meets Jamie, things slowly change.

Landon got into some trouble and had to be in the school play and do some community work. He struggled with learning the lines for the play so he asked Jamie for help, but Jamie asked Landon to promise one thing, that he would not fall in love with her.

Jamie changed Landon’s life tremendously; the only thing that Landon now cared about was Jamie. Landon had to change his whole lifestyle around her because of her dad and their Christian beliefs. One day Jamie told Landon really big news and that changed everything. During this news Jamie showed Landon the true meaning of life.

I think this is a really good book AND movie because it shows how one person could change everything and also demonstrates that you don’t have to care what other people think. If you love a good love story and want to shed a couple tears, I would definitely recommend this book and/or movie.
